Photo a day.....27th June.

A garden to take tea in.

Almost a black-and-white photo, but there were patches of colour. It was very calming.

The Chelsea guide said....
"This city garden has been designed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Benevolent Fund for the Aged. The garden is the centrepiece of the launch of a campaign called Best Tea Time Ever!, which will raise funds for NBFA's work with older people who live on a low income. The garden has a timeless, classic design, to suit the needs of people with busy lifestyles who require a quiet outdoor space.

The clean, formal lines, low maintenance planting, and comfortable sofas for sitting back and relaxing with a good book or newspaper and a cup of tea, create the ideal outdoor room. The mirrored panels, travertine floor tiles and water brighten the space by reflecting light into the garden, and a modern piece of sculpture provides a dramatic focal point."

I loved it....except for the "sculpture"....not my taste...!

Very chic...but the statue is rather overpowering. If it was much smaller with water trickling down it I'd like it better.
